Disappearing 9-Patch

ChristinaFebruary 21, 2008

It’s coming right along! I got all of my 9-patches sewn…and then I began to cut the “disappearing” part.

First down the center one directions…

Then across the center the other direction…

And I had all of those “disappearing” block pieces (36 to be exact)

Then I had to square them all up (tedious!)…

And finally, I started sewing them together! The fabrics are really cute, but part of me is not totally thrilled with it. They are too mtachy-matchy…not enough contrast. So i’m thinking i’ll have to do this quilt again. I’m going to go on the hunt for fat quarters in our next quilt shop stops and dig into the stash I already have (which is extensive, but not quite what i’m looking for in the way of color and patterns).

And here’s all the stacks waiting to be assembled into the larger blocks.

And for good measure, here’s an updated picture of my little basketball…I mean, baby. :)

    How large did your quilt end up being? I want to start one but I need to make sure I have enough material.
